Campaign Hat

From: Susan Floyd <susanf5133>
Date: Saturday, April 25, 1998
During the renovation of a 1904 Fort Rosecrans, San Diego, Ca,
building site, a felt campaign hat was brought to the attention of
the Fort Guijarros Museum Foundation.

There are many moth holes.  Should the item be placed as soon as
possible in a freezer to destroy any possible further infestations?
What are the possibilities for conservation of the hat?  Would
blocking be a possibility? Are there any institutions who would
offer advice?  We are an all volunteer group who would be
appreciative of any advice. Thank you.
